The Sony Xperia 1 is a device that’s known best for its super-tall 21:9 display. Today, Amazon has announced that the Xperia 1 will be its latest Alexa hands-free smartphone, and it’s going to be $100 off to celebrate.
Sony’s Xperia 1 smartphone is svelte, tall, modern, and powerful. The 21:9 aspect ratio means you get a cinematic viewing experience. It’s too bad there are several other shortcomings, such as a lackluster camera.
Every other phone’s display feels disappointing now.
Sony isn’t exactly a major player in the smartphone space anymore, but that doesn’t mean you should immediately count it out when the company releases a new flagship. The Xperia 1 ushers in a new design philosophy for Sony, focusing on the company’s strengths in displays and imaging with a new, taller aspect ratio and a 4K OLED panel.
When a new phone goes on sale, it’s common practice for the company to offer an incentive for people who pre-order. This same thing is happening for the Sony’s latest flagship the Xperia 1, and Sony is packing a wallop of a pre-order bonus, with their $350 WH1000XM3 headphones.
